The electricity in my apartment went off yesterday. Again. Thankfully, it came on right as I was getting home from work.
Did I mention I’m magic?
Had the electricity not gone on, I would have been in quite the situation. Because I was having a rest day and had nothing else to do. Other than clean. And that would have been just as impossible. Shucks.
But let’s not dwell- it did go on and I got my relaxed night on the couch. Catching up with “my programs”. That included a glass of Merlot and this:I had to run by the grocery store after work and all day had been craving a turkey wrap in the worst way.
This is a chicken wrap. I was at the deli counter, had him pull out the honey roasted turkey, put it in the slicer and- WAIT! Spotted the honey bbq chicken. I want it instead, if that’s ok. I’m sorry… did you start slicing? No… ok- I’ll have the chicken. No- not along with the turkey, instead of the turkey. Yes, you can put the turkey back. I want the chicken. No, not that one, the one above it… yeah, that’s the one! Same amount… just the chicken, though. Thanks…
I’m so awkward at the deli counter.
I’m so awkward at ordering food in general. Please tell me I’m not the only one???
In the wrap, I included spinach (green is important!), avocado (green is still important!), onion and a little General Tsao sauce. And a nice pair of balls. Of the sweet potato variety, people. It may be Friday, but let’s try not to be too crude this early in the morning…
Because I was still in Thursday night mode, I was in bed early. So lame considering today is my day off!
That’s right. I took today off. No major reason. I just really needed one. A refresher. An Amy day, if you will. Because let’s face it- the winter doldrums will get to ya if you don’t fight it.
This is my way of fighting it.
Anyway, it’s no surprise I woke up early. This didn’t bug me- I have time for a nap later (and WILL take it).
Up with the sun I was. And off to the gym (I really know how to party).
Because I know what my plans are for tonight, there was an executive decision made to switch my long run to this morning instead of wait until tomorrow. It’s not like I have a super strict schedule going on…
It was 7:30 when I stepped on the treadmill (told you it was weirdly early) and 8:30 when I stepped off. That left room for a quick warm-up, run and cool-down. My actual run was 6 miles (as according to plan) at an 8:38 pace.
I would like to thank Cage the Elephant, The Killers, and Kanye West for this particular run. You boys kept me going. So… thanks!
Even though it’s a day off, there are a few things to take care of. So ummm… time to go be productive for a while.
